News : 30 New Apprenticeships for Nottingham Students
Nottingham, UK, Jan 13, 2016 -- Students looking for hands-on training are being urged to take advantage of 30 new apprenticeships. Education correspondent Dan Russell finds out more.
Thirty students will get the chance to work with some of the biggest companies in the country and earn while they learn.
Solution Marketing has teamed up with New College Nottingham to deliver the roles for new customer service advisors, who will each complete a Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship over 12-15 months. Call centre manager Richard Logan said: "We're looking for positive, energetic people who are good listeners, have a strong work ethic and are self-motivated. We chose to work with New College Nottingham because they're one of the top colleges in the East Midlands and we really like the qualifications they offer. We like to grow our business from the grass roots, so once the apprenticeship has been completed there will be excellent opportunities to progress."
Once in post, the new recruits will spend time learning on the job and completing assignments and tasks as part of their qualification, with support from a college assessor.
Day to day, apprentices will be speaking to customers who are interested in various products over the phone, taking down key information which will then be passed on to the sales team to take further.
Recruitment is being administered by the college's specialist apprenticeship team.
Recruitment manager Jenny Clarke said: "This is a great opportunity for 30 people to join a marketing company in the city with a 14-year history and strong track record in developing its staff. Solution Marketing really do have an open mind when recruiting, they look for potential and they're interested in people who are committed to working hard, so I'd encourage people to apply no matter what their background."
